Jens Lekman - Erica America

It is also nice to see the return of one of my old favourites, Jens Lekman, whom Melbourne has adopted as our own over the past few years!  New LP on the way later this year, of which buying and supporting Jens is a no brainer.  Jens is keeping alive the soulful and melancholic singer/songwriter, and most importantly, the vocalist, that is so sorely missing in modern times.

Dirty Projectors - Gun Has No Trigger


This is lovely.  They continue to reminds me of David Byrne’s vocal style, and the past 2 years seems to have been kind to their evolution of sound in a minimalistic sense.  Can’t wait for the full album.

In celebration of finally buying and receiving this seminal piece of electronic music on 12” vinyl in the mail!

Watch as Blawan and Pariah explain how “Post-Dubstep” is the most useless tag ever. We couldn’t agree more.

Boards of Canada - Oirectine

Just beautiful ambient electronic music from BoC.  I wish they’d release new material.

Bullion - Collision

Bullion is channeling Robert Wyatt on his latest EP ‘Love Me Oh Please Love Me’.  Collision is one of my favourite tracks off it.  It is quite off kilter and in a completely opposite direction compared to Bullion’s sample based mash ups of the past, but I really like the direction he is going.

R.Kelly - Share My Love

I am finding R.Kelly increasingly cheesy since last years ‘Love Letter’ album, but I love the music!  The new album will be a treat.

Blawan Boiler Room 60 minute mix

Common - The Light

Some real hip-hop here.  Some fantastic sampling by J Dilla for the vocal chorus and the drum loop, too.

Great look at Ben UFO, and his influences, plus an insight into the inception of Hessle Audio.

Bullion - Love Me Oh Please Love Me EP

Bullion is channeling some SERIOUS Robert Wyatt/Cantebury Prog scene vibes on this EP.  It’s strangely beautiful and off kilter, but really enjoyable in a ‘having a cup of tea on a balmy Sunday afternoon’ sort of way.

R.I.P. Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch
The Beastie Boys made music that is and has been incredibly influential for me.  Ever since I was a young teenager, whose music taste was still yet to be discovered, to now, where my musical taste has become as eclectic as the sampling heard on ‘Paul’s Boutique’.  From being obsessed with ‘C-C-Check it out’ (I watched the music video and listened to the track as soon as i got home from high school for a long time - this is pre-itunes) and the album ‘To the Five Boroughs’, to buying ‘Paul’s Botique’ and being exposed to some of the most ingenious genre defieing hip hop I had ever experience, to brancing out and enjoying their more obscure material (their instrumental album ‘The In Sound from Way Out being a highlight, and who could forget the rarity ‘Netty’s Girl’ and accompanying video from ‘The Sounds of Science Anthology’? MCA always felt, to me, like the wise head of the group - a deeper voice and more focused style seperated him from Ad Rock and Mike D.  I am deeply saddened that I never got to see them live as a group, but the music will live on.
MCA died far too young, and had so much more to give as a musician and a human being.  Rest in peace.
